Bats play a valuable role in ecosystems. They devour tremendous quantities of insects, mostly at nighttime. During the day, they will nest in structures that offer small and dark hiding places. In Durango and surrounding areas, many of the older and mountain-style homes offer such hiding places.  If you have bats in your structures, we can help! We will remove your bat colony with safe and humane methods. Contact us today for professional bat removal services.
